‘sex and religion’

Roy Moore is NOT a Pedophile. He’s a Traitor.

I’ve been writing about Roy Moore for almost fifteen years.

Roy Moore has a 35-year record of political activity and belief that disqualifies him from public office in America.

This has very little to do with his taste for teenage females. And, contrary to what some breathless headlines say, Roy Moore is not a pedophile.

Pedophiles are sexually attracted to PRE-pubescent males and/or females.

Abstinence Sex Ed? “I’m Baaack…”

Like a bad penny—or like an abusive ex-husband, or a public policy cancer—abstinence is back, just when we thought it was gone. Through the 1970s, U.S. policy was to reduce teen pregnancy.
